15 Minute At-Home Workout

jill yoga review

I used to have a gym membership. Not a traditional gym with treadmills and ellipticals but one of the 9 Round kickboxing gyms. Lee and I really did like going. We had a good routine down for a while in the evenings, but then life gets busier and gyms get harder to visit. That’s why I love the idea of simple and effective at home workouts.

Today, Nutritionist and Personal Trainer, Sloane Davis is sharing her version of a short and effective at- home workout!

“In the heat of summer and quite literally some dog days, I aim for a short, 15-20 minute blast of exercise.   You’d be surprised at how much you can do in a short amount of time! The key is shorter rest periods, higher reps, with lower weight.

This workout will get your heart pumping, raise your metabolic rate, use all of your muscle groups, and make you feel great for the rest of the day.


Perform each move as many times as you can for 1 minute. Rest for 1 minute, then repeat 2 or 3 times, depending on how much time you have. This could be for 15 minutes

  • Reverse Lunges
  • Step Ups
  • Tricep Dips
  • Squats
  • Push Ups
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Up and Down Plank

Supersets are a great way to get you heart rate up and budget your time wisely. A superset is combining 2 exercises back to back with a rest only after you have completed the 2 exercises. I especially like using supersets to incorporate 2 antagonist muscles. An example would be working the biceps and triceps together.” -Sloane

Simple, easy, effective. Nothing can beat a workout like that! And before you grab that chair and try this for yourself, head over to my Instagram and enter my Giveaway to win a pair of the amazing Jill Yoga leggings I posted about here!
